negative camber

took it for an alignment today since i just put my lift on

they said everything was fine except my camber ... -1.00*

they said they couldnt fix it but i could buy some offset ball joints to possibly correct this problem


anyone know and any places that sell offset ball joints or has anyone else had/have this problem?


LIFETIME alignment owns

NAPA sells them. But at around $90 a pop they are not cheap.

I aligned mine the other day. Mine aligned out perfectly, and I have 6 in of lift. Of course I do have a long arm kit and that might have helped . Instead of the ball joints, you might wanna get adjustable uppers and lowers to help dial it in.

I assume by "uppers and lowers" you mean control arms.... how exactly will those help his camber?

JV: another used axle may have the same problem. It would be cheaper to fix the one you've got unless there are other problems with it besides balljoints.
